Magna Cum Laude - With Great Praise!

I am a proud Mom today. That is not to say that I am not proud of my children every day, but today my DS graduated from York University. I always knew he could do it! He received an Honours Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics. He was the only one receiving that degree out of hundreds of other graduates! And he did it Magna Cum Laude!
I took this photo of the huge screen that was hanging in front of me. It was impossible to get any closer in my wheelchair. Those things that seem to be sticking out of his head...well they're microphones on the stage. I couldn't do anything about them. They make him look like an alien or something. All I can say is, "The Mathman has landed!"

Oh! Yes! I am a proud Mom! But I think I said that already!

Congratulations to you and your son. What a very special honor indeed. Is he planning a Masters degree given his ability at the undergraduate level?

I know you had to be bustin' your buttons. How wonderful. I do good to add, but I find a mathematician's mind is intriguing.
Is he going to go on for his master's or has he thought that far yet?

Well, you give that DS a big hug and tell him he made his mama's friends right proud, too. Now it's your turn to do the happy dance!

Best news ever. He really looks good even if he has things sticking out of his head. He is very clever and you are right to be proud since he is a part of you. Congratulations to the two of you.

Hetty, did you have to give me the "Mathman" or something. That's hilarious. I was all ready for a good comment, too. Something that would add up to the great pride you must be feeling, sum it up and all that. But you left me in a lurch with that dern "Mathman" and I've yet to recover.
